"September 13, 2017, (a day that will live in infamy), Linda Decker Santoro and I vicariously joined those Bengals who gathered for lunch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of us Bengals turning 21!  Linda brought her chorus Letter and I brought my yearbook.  I'm trying to show my Bengal tiger earrings.  We ate by the koi pond at a lovely outdoor restaurant call Shenandoah."

"Sara and Kevin were really into Grateful Dead music in their teen years; and turned me into a Deadhead, too!  Kevin had quite a collection of concert shirts - mostly ragged.  Without him knowing it, I collected each shirt he put into a give-away bag.  It took me a year to make, but in 2016, I presented him with a quilt made from the salvageable shirts for his 38th birthday. " 

"My sons and I followed the Lakers during the 'three-peat' years of Kobe and Shaq.  Here I am with the bronze statue of Lakers Legend, Chick Hearn, in front of the Staples Center where the games were played.  Chick's demise was a great loss to us Laker fans.  I had met him personally when I appeared on the "Bowling for Dollars" t.v. program he hosted back in the 70's.
